Sorry, it's been sitting at the bottom of my starred list for months, the prospect of reloading context always making it a little less attractive than something else. I turned out I had to update to even have 'packaging'
Error was caused by an actual change in behavior - I was testing the argument-check by providing an action with no argument. The new code assumes a single 'word' is a filename, and translates it to include, eg. 'include include' which then passes the parse.
I modified the Manifest to test against the list of actions, since this makes it harder for users to make a mistake. Of course we could just drop the test, or only check multi-argument actions.
